Why Quilters Love Inklingo Octagons
Colonial Garden 15.4 x 15.4 inches
1. Unusual & Beautiful Designs
Follow any pattern or use the time you save to create exciting settings and color combinations.
2. Simple to Decide How Much Fabric
There are diagrams in every shape collection which show how many shapes you can cut from a yard of fabric.
3. Easy to Cut
No measuring. No templates. Use a rotary cutter or scissors. No expensive cutting machines required—and there are stitching lines and matching marks printed on every shape!
4. Sew with a Running Stitch or by Machine
Sew with a running stitch instead of whip-stitching over templates with English Paper Piecing!
A running stitch is more portable, more fun, more precise, and faster! And the stitches don't show on the front!
On the other hand, there are 8 Good Ways to Use Inklingo for English Paper Piecing, if that is the method you enjoy.
If you want to sew by machine, choose the larger sizes.
5. Fussy Cut
There are TWO fussy cutting methods with Inklingo!
Use freezer paper templates to make Swiss cheese of the fabric.
2. No Waste Fussy Cutting
Print identical sheets of fabric, similar to Stack n Whack™, but simpler.
6. Print scraps and Jelly Rolls
Monkey shows you how to print on Jelly Rolls on the All About Inklingo blog.
7. You can finish an EPP UFO with Inklingo!
"English Paper Piecing Rescue" is one of the most popular pages on the website!
